Ryan Murphy’s Pose is making history.
FX has officially confirmed Wednesday that the network has ordered Pose to series.
The new dance musical drama will feature the largest cast of transgender actors ever on American TV. Set in the 1980s, the series “looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.”
Murphy spoke of his exciting of being a part of such a unique project.
“I am thrilled to… present what I think is a game changer of a show, which at its heart is an uplifting series about the universal quest for identity, family and respect… I’m so proud that Pose and FX has made history right from the beginning by featuring the most trans series regular actors ever in an American television production. Additionally, the first season Pose will feature 50-plus LGBTQ characters—a record in American television history. I can’t wait for people to see this incredibly talented, passionate cast.”
Production begins in February in New York and will most likely premiere during the summer. The series is executive produced by Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson and Brad Falchuk. It was written by co-creators and executive producers Murphy, Falchuk and Steven Canals.
